So the 45th round of Travel
Photo Roulette has come to a close. First off, thanks to everyone for
entering. All in all, we received 29 entries on the "surreal" theme.
It was a tougher-than-usual theme, but there were so many great entries
from many different angles on the topic.
Before we get to the winner, I'll count down my top 5:
It was a great round! Check out my choice for best surreal photo, and my top 5 here.
A few exhaustive travel days, and the past 3 mornings up before 5 to shoot photos meant I was in a dream state already. Early this morning, 12600 monks descended on Chiang Mai to collect alms for the flood victims in the south. An entire street was blocked off as waves of orange robes came down from one end to the other. This dreamy shot taken with a lensbaby summed up how the morning felt. Surreal. It wasn't until days later that I was able to look back at the enormity of the situation and process it for myself.
As the winner of the first ever Travel Photography Roulette,
I was planning to announce that there would be no other Travel
Photography Roulette competitions so I can retire as the one and only
champion! Alas, the torch must be passed and the show must go on!
While the first competition was "Animals," this week we're going with one of my favorite travel finds: Road Signs! Nothing says too funny
like a "Penguins X-ing" sign, especially when they mean it. I know
you've all been holding back your quirky signs so people don't think
your travel blog is too low brow, but now is your time to shine! I'll
be choosing my favorite road sign of all the submissions received for
one week, with the contest ending on November 24th.
